How to Install the CIPA Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2017 Toyota Highlander


Today on our 2017 Toyota Highlander we're going to be doing a test fit of the CEPA clip on towing mirror, part number 7070. It offers us a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park or even back up while towing a trailer or a camper. As you can see I'm visible in the towing mirror but not the factory mirror. If I take a few steps in towards my trailer, as you can see there's no blind spot by the way we've got it set up but this is the view you get with just your factory mirror. The mirror itself can be rotated 360 degrees so if you'd like to keep it at that horizontal position for a different view, you have that option. Now it can also be adjusted to most angles.

We've got our up and down, diagonal and side to side. Here you can see that each one of our clips is not going to interfere with the operation or movement of our factory mirror and we can even still fold it in. Here on the backside it uses two adjustable rubber straps to hold it in place. The nice thing about them being rubber is they're going to help grip the backside of your mirror and they also won't harm or scratch the backside of the mirror. Here you can see that the straps don't interfere with our turn signal on our mirror. So we still have full use.

A few great things about this towing mirror are, is for one, it's for temporary use, so you can take it off when you're done towing. Another great thing is it's universal, so if you have any other trucks or SUVs in the household, it may work with those as well. Now the mirror does come in a quantity of one, so if you'd like to pick one up for the passenger side, just use the same part number. Now I'll show you how it easy it is to get installed. So I'm here on the driver's side of my highlander. To begin my test fit, let's go ahead and turn the mirror over.

We need to make sure that each one of our tabs here, with the lip on it sits on the inside of our housing. Turn it back over. I'm going to open up the arms and I'm just going to center it up with my mirror. Set the bottom in place and then the top. Then I can hold it in place with one hand and then run my straps on the backside. Now when we run our straps we want to make sure that there's a little bit of tension on them already.

That way when we clip it in place, it holds the mirror in place. I'd say we got some good tension there. I'm going to stretch it up over the top and clip it on top. We can adjust the strap as needed. Then we'll just repeat the same process with the second strap. Now if we want to tighten it or loosen it, we can guide the strap through and pull it down through the other side. Let's go ahead and clip it in place and then we're all set. We're ready to tow. It's that easy. That's going to complete our test fit of the CEPA clip on towing mirror, part number 7070 on our 2017 Toyota Highlander.
